Before Hollywood gets too carried away this weekend with self-congratulations for all the wonderful films produced in 2006, the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation stepped forward Saturday to remind everyone that there were some stinkers too.
Chief among them: "Basic Instinct 2," named worst picture of the year in the 27th annual Razzie Awards.
The thriller also was (dis)honored in three other categories: worst actress (Sharon Stone), worst prequel or sequel and worst screenplay (by Leora Barish and Henry Bean).
The comedy "Little Man" picked up three Razzies, the Artesia-based foundation said in a news release: for worst actor (the teaming of brothers Marlon and Shawn Wayans), worst remake or rip-off (the judges deemed it a rip-off of the 1954 Bugs Bunny cartoon "Baby Buggy Bunny") and worst screen couple (Shawn Wayans and either Kerry Washington or Marlon Wayans -- take your pick).
M. Night Shyamalan was chosen worst director for his box-office dud "Lady in the Water." He also won as worst supporting actor for the same film.
